More Description

Giving particular attention to intergovernmental working relationships, this revised edition of " Federalism and Environmental Policy" has been significantly updated to reflect the changes that have taken place since the highly praised first edition. Denise Scheberle examines reasons why environmental laws seldom work out exactly as planned. Casting federal-state working relationships as "pulling together," "coming apart," or somewhere in-between, she provides dozens of observations from federal and state officials. This study also suggests that implementation of environmental policy is a story of high stakes politics -- a story rich with contextual factors and as fascinating as the time the policy was formulated.

As four very different environmental programs unfold -- asbestos (updated to include the fallout from the World Trade Center), drinking water, radon, and surface coal mining -- Scheberle demonstrates how programs evolve differently, with individual political, economic, logistical, and technical constraints. The policy implementation framework developed for the book provides the lens through which to compare environmental laws.

"Federalism and Environmental Policy" goes beyond the contents of policy to explore the complex web of federal-state working relationships and their effect on the implementation of policy. It is unique in how it portrays the nuts-and-bolts, the extent to which the state and federal offices work together effectively -- or not. Examining working relationships within the context of program implementation and across four different environmental programs offers a unique perspective on why environmental laws sometimes go awry.
